Aligning Courses to Programs via Import

System Administration stores and manages data for Program-to-Course alignments.

This data can be entered via CSV import, or through manual updating. This article will focus on entering Program-Course Alignment data via import. 

For information on entering this data manually, please see:

Aligning Courses to Programs Manually

Importing Program-Course Alignment Data

This functionality includes an option for System Administrators to import CSVs with bulk data to align Courses to Programs. Just as with new records, updates to Program Curriculum data can also be made through CSV import.

mceclip0.pngThe above shows the CSV import fields for Program Curriculum. A System Administrator is required to enter values for all fields. In the above example all three courses are aligned to the BS_Marketing Program, but only two of the courses are required for the program.

mceclip0.pngIn the above display, within System Administration, the Curriculum Column indicates the number of courses that are aligned with a Program. By clicking on the action button we see the below display.

In this display all aligned courses will be listed, as well as indicate if the course is required or not within the program.

 

How to update alignment using CSV Import

It is possible to update alignment data through CSV import as well.

To change whether a Course is required for a Program, change the previous TRUE to a FALSE in the required_course fields and then import the CSV to make the updates. 

In the below image, when the CSV is imported, Intro_MKT_101 and MKT_201 will: 

1) remain aligned to the BS_Marketing Program
2) no longer be a required course for the BS_Marketing Program

To remove both a Course’s alignment and its requirement to a Program, change the previous TRUE to a FALSE in the required_course fields and also in the aligned_course fields. Then import the CSV to make the updates.

In the below image, when the CSV is imported, Intro_MKT_101 and MKT_201 will: 

1) no longer remain aligned to the BS_Marketing Program
2) no longer be a required course for the BS_Marketing Program
